Gunshot victim claims to be 'gangster' and refuses to cooperate, but asks for ambulance

17:39 | ,

He may not be cooperating with investigators, but he told police what he needed after he was injured in an apparent drive-by shooting over the weekend. Springfield police officers Carla Daniele and Jonathan Torres located a 23-year-old gunshot victim after responding to a report of gunfire in the vicinity of Maple Street and Avon Place at about 5:30 p.m. Sunday. The officers tried to get information from the man regarding who had shot him, but the victim was very uncooperative, according to Sgt. John Delaney, executive aide to Springfield Police Commissioner William Fitchet. "He stated to the officers, 'I'm from the 'hood, I'm a gangster. ... All I need is an ambulance,' " Delaney said. The victim was taken to Baystate Medical Center for treatment of a single gunshot wound to the lower leg, police said. The victim was on Maple Street near the intersection of Avon Place when a vehicle approached and an occupant yelled something before opening fire. The victim declined to describe the car or its occupants, police said. The case is being handled by Detective Richard Ryder, of the Springfield Police Department Criminal Investigation Bureau. No arrests had been made as of early Tuesday, according to Sgt. Dennis Prior. Meanwhile, in a separate case, police on Friday charged a city man in connection with an alleged assault at his Sixteen Acres home. Details of the incident were unavailable, but Jose E. Ramirez, 38, of 6 Queensbury Drive, was expected to be arraigned Monday in Springfield District Court on charges of attempted murder and assault and battery. The outcome of the court proceeding was not immediately known.
